Silver Jade Pendant
Custom Jade Pendant, Gold Or 925 Silver
This 925 silver jade pendant has an interesting story behind it. The concept is based on a century old design carved on a very old wooden door. The fact is that, old classic designs like this pendant, never seem to go out of fashion. At the same time, modern contemporary styles seem to have a rather short shelf life. The green jade pendant shown here in silver can also be custom made in yellow or white gold. The increase in gold prices has been a one way road, a significant number of gold jewelry buyers have moved to silver options. What is sad however is the fact that, the fine silver jewelry expected of these ex-gold jewelry buyers is in very short supply. The PG3001 sterling silver jade pendant, is aimed at those quality concious buyers. While we will gladly craft this jade pendant in silver or gold for you, the quality of gem and craftsmanship will remain the same for both metal options.
Jade is a stone that has been known to man for many thousand years. An interesting thing about jade is that, the initial applications to which it was put did not relate to jewelry at all. Jade by nature is made up of numerous fibres meshed into each other, this actually adds to the toughness of the stone. Man realized this and used the stone to make weapons and tools. The price of jade has today raised it to the level of a gemstone used in fine jewelry. And along with this introduction into the world of gemstones, came a host of folklore and traditional beliefs. The sheer beauty and grace of this 925 silver jade pendant makes it highly desirable, a significant portion of the demand would be generated by this. At the same time, a large number of buyers would like to wear this jade pendant because of the, special significance that the gem has for them.
When making jade jewelry there gem price is an important factor that every jeweler has to consider. Fine jade, in sizes beyond 8mm with a uniform green color are highly prized gems. A natural jade that has not been treated in any way, with a beauty that matches the jade in the PG3001 pendant, could cost as much as 1,000 U.S$ in the retail markets. Given the very large demand base for jade, this price would have fit the budget of a tiny minority. For this reason, natural jade is very often dyed to improve it's color. This might seem strange but, gemstone treatments to enhance gem beauty are widely accepted. For example, a 5,000 U.S$ octogonal blue sapphire that weighs about 5 to 6 carats, would almost surely have been heat treated to improve it's color. The same is true for rubies too, more than 90% of the rubies and sapphires used in jewelry are treated to enhance their beauty. Another good example is emerald, even the finest emeralds securely preserved in museums are treated with natural oils to improve their transparency and lustre. The important thing to remember is that, all these gems are natural and have been mined from the earth. The treatment is done to make them appear better or make them tougher.
We have shown the 925 silver jade pendant with a green jade gemstone, other jade colors could include lavendar (light purple) and yellow. Keep in mind that all these jade gems are dyed to enhance their color. The term jade as defined by gem experts includes both nephrite and jadeite. If you need a gold or silver jade gemstone pendant with an untreated jade gem, nephrite is a good option. This jade variety has a dark green color, and can show some interesting lighter green patches too. We have often stated that, the need for an untreated gem is generally influenced by some special significance that the stone has for the buyer - beauty and apperance are not so important in such cases.
Now an interesting and important thing about, gems touching the skin. The demand for gems from buyers who believe in various gemstone traditions and powers is considerable. One often requested feature from these buyers is for the gemstone in the jewel to touch the skin, this could for pendants or even for rings. Here is what we would suggest if you would like the gem, in your jade silver pendant to touch the skin when the pendant is worn. The jade gemstone as you can see in the image, is a smooth cabachon cut oval gemstone. We could mount two of these gems, back to back in the 925 silver pendant. The gem on the back side would touch the skin and the fact that, the gemstone is rounded and not pointed or faceted will ensure that the skin does not get scratched or irritated. In the standard version of the 925 sterling silver jade gemstone pendant, we have closed the back of the pendant with metal. So if you need the jade gemstone to touch the skin from behind, do request specifically for it and we can have it done. There might be a slight increase in price for the second gem that needs to be mounted at the back.
A unique feature of all our jewelry is that, every jewel can be ordered in gold or 925 silver with the gemstone of your choice. When it comes to large gem sizes as seen in the jade silver pendant, the econimics of gem pricing make some gems irrelevant. For example, a natural ruby, sapphire, emerald or tanzanite gem of this size would be priced well over 3,000 U.S$ for the gem alone. This is the only reason why you might not find some gem options in the pricing tables for the jade pendant concept. Another aspect for the gem choice is the decision to get a faceted or cabachon (smooth) cutting style for the gem. The image you see for the 925 silver jade pendant, shows the pendant with a smooth cabachon cut green jade. Given the overall antique style of the jewel, a cabachon cut looks most impressive. You can discuss, the possibility of getting a faceted gem for your gold or silver pendant at the time of ordering.
Silver Or Gold Jade Pendant, Features Summary
The beauty of jade is enough to draw the attention of even a casual jewelry and gem buyer but, there is more to this gem. Since jade like many other gems, has been known for a very long time, traditions and beliefs related to the stone are many. A substantial demand for jade pendants and other jade jewelry relates to buyers who believe in traditions. Closely related to this demand is an often made request - buyers wish to have a jade jewel where the gem actually touches the skin. The belief that the 'powers' of a gem are enhanced if it is worn with direct contact to the skin, are quite strong. While we do not make any claims of special powers for any gems that we sell, we can fulfill requests for the jade in your pendant to touch the skin. To make such a jade pendant, two jade gems are mounted back to back, the gem on the portion behind the pendant would then touch the skin. This might cost you a bit more than the conventional design with a single gem, but it is an attractive option for those who respect traditional beliefs.
